Can't find any press releases, but saw this appear on the BHS page. It's exactly midway between the XR31 and XR22 in depth, but only 455g advertised. Looks like another good budget option.

It's really close in dimension to the Pacenti Forza, but $35 cheaper and kinlin rims aren't known for cracking at the spoke holes. Not as nice as a finish though.

Good news. Interesting depth. But then again, so many toroidal shaped sub 30 mm alu rims out there. Do we really need another one?

Kinlin mentioned they had this to me. No asymmetric offering though.

How do the XR??T rims go for non tubeless applications? I've previously used tubeless mtb 29er rims with road clinchers and had a little difficulty getting the beads to sit neatly in the beadlock of the rim. Is this at all an issue with these rims?

I've used the 22T with Challenge open tubulars and Conti 4000 sII with no problems. It has tubeless rim tape which is slick and helps the bead slide.

if you tubeless tape pretty much all non tubeless tyres fit well. var tape is thinner than stans and therefore better.

Also really close in dims and weight to the Easton R90SL rim.

The XR26Ts we brought in come with a sandblasted finished that is really quite nice. I expect the weight to go up, but we've been weighing some well under 450 grams.

We've had them for a little while now and don't have any complaints. Very typical of kinlin rims, but with the new matte finish instead of the traditional gloss. Weights are coming in right at or a little under claimed. Brake surface is pretty good and reliability has been without problem. Works fine for tubeless or tubed, but as was suggested use tubeless tape for both applications.

There are a few pictures of them on our site https://fairwheelbikes.com/kinlin-xr-26 ... -road-rim/
